It just died after he did an oil change? What oil is he using? Did he use a OEM filter with the OEM cap? Or was it an aftermarket oil filter? Will it start back up? Is it showing oil pressure when cranking? Hard to provide any info with such a brief description.....

Sounds like he used the wrong oil filter and cap because I had that same problem but I just went back and got the right one. Never did put it on. That's all the info he gave me. Sorry guys

You also need to check and see if the little black plastic button is still in the bottom of the oil filter. That is the houseings drain valve, if dammaged or missing the oil drains out of the houseing. Why which filter and cap is important is the filter holds the valve closed.
Most aftermarket filters are taller and come with their own cap which is taller. If you should put a motorcraft filter back in say after useing a Wix, the filter is shorter and will float up opening the drain valve causeing poor oil flow and pressure.
